It’s that time of year: Cookies are baking, snow is falling, and Christmas tunes are playing everywhere. The holiday season is a wonderful time of the year. But, if you’re moving – it can be a very stressful time of year. Here are a few of our tips for moving over the holidays – ways to stay sane and still celebrate this wonderful season.
1. The Best Time for a Holiday Move
If you’re planning the best time for your move over the holidays, consider moving in between Christmas and the New Year. The week after December 25th is usually very laid-back. Many people aren’t working. In fact, you may even have some time off work. You’ll likely have more friends and family available to help make your move go smoothly.
2. Stay Organized
If you’re moving over the holidays, it is important now more than ever that you stay organized. Have everything you don’t need for the holidays packed up and ready to go. And, go ahead and put up those Christmas decorations! Instead of stashing away your regular décor, simply pack it into boxes. You’ll only have to pack up your Christmas decorations after the holiday is over.
3. Simplify the Season
There is no need to abstain from celebrating Christmas. Instead, simplify what you would normally do. Instead of hosting the family dinner at your home, go to a friend or family member’s house this year. Or, simply cook something simple and get a special dessert or wine to celebrate the occasion.
